Joint Trial Ordered for Mesothelioma Legal Claims
New York Mesothelioma attorneys discuss the two 'asbestos exposure in the workplace' cases recently joined by the Supreme Court.
(PRWEB) October 16, 2007 -- Two New York Mesothelioma/asbestos legal claims involving asbestos exposure in the workplace, filed by Levy Philips & Konigsberg, LLP, have been joined for trial based upon a recent legal court decision. On September 24, 2007, Justice Marcy S. Friedman, Supreme Court, New York County, located in downtown New York City, announced a ruling that joins the two mesothelioma cases, both being legal claims for mesothelioma/asbestos exposure in the workplace, for a single trial to begin on November 5, 2007.
The Court's Order joins the cases of Joel and Sharon Rosenberg v. Alpha Wire Company, et. al, Index No. 106697/06 and Joseph and Dolores Casale, Index No. 104299/06. Mr. Rosenberg resided in Jackson, New Jersey when he developed pleural mesothelioma due to workplace asbestos exposure; he died from this asbestos cancer at the age of 64. Mr. Casale, who is living with pleural mesothelioma at the age of 65, resides in Lantana, Florida. Mesothelioma attorneys from Levy Phillips & Konigsberg LLP filed these legal claims regarding asbestos/mesothelioma in the New York City Asbestos Litigation, as each man suffered significant exposure to asbestos while working in New York City.
Mr. Rosenberg, a life-long electrician with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers ("IBEW"), Local 3, started in the trade while still a teenager in 1960. Mr. Rosenberg's workplace asbestos exposure occurred while working in the electrician trade in work sites in New York. Mesothelioma due to workplace asbestos exposure developed in Mr. Rosenberg from a variety of worksites including the Arthur Kill Powerhouse in Staten Island, the World Trade Center, Kennedy Airport and Rockefeller Center. The asbestos/mesothelioma legal claim seeks money damages for Mr. Rosenberg's pain and suffering resulting from his mesothelioma. continues. Electricians, such as Mr. Rosenberg, sustained asbestos exposure in the workplace from a variety of sources including the cutting and splicing of wire and cable that was insulated with asbestos, as well as the drilling of asbestos-containing electrical control panels.
Mr. Casale was a career steam fitter (also known as pipe fitter). At the time, steamfitters were unknowingly endangered with asbestos exposure in their workplace due to asbestos being used in boilers and other equipment. While still a teenager Mr. Casale worked at shipyards, including the Brooklyn Navy Yard, as a member of the Local 638 Union. Mr. Casale continued in the same union and worked in the steam fitter trade at job sites in New York City throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Mr. Casale later moved to Florida but due to his asbestos exposure in the workplace while still in New York, mesothelioma was diagnosed and immediately linked to his previous occupation. Mr. Casale's occupation caused his workplace asbestos exposure from equipment, including pumps, valves, and boilers, as well as from gaskets and insulation.
Justice Friedman joined these two mesothelioma/asbestos legal claims into a single trial based upon New York Civil Practice Law and Rule ("CPLR") Section 602 which permits cases to be joined for trial to "avoid unnecessary costs or delay." The defendants in the lawsuit argued that the cases should be tried separately because Mr. Rosenberg and Mr. Casale worked in different trades and their claimed workplace asbestos exposure occurred at different job sites. But the New York mesothelioma attorneys from Levy Philips & Konigsberg, LLP, convinced the Court that these cases should be tried together to save costs and insure that each family received their day in court as soon as possible.
The trial of these New York City mesothelioma/asbestos legal claims is expected to last approximately six weeks, and will feature the testimony of Mr. Casale, Mr. Rosenberg, their wives and children, along with a host of expert witnesses, with expertise in areas such as occupational medicine, history and public health.
The trial will take place in Justice Friedman's courtroom located at 80 Centre Street in Manhattan.

Recent Flooding Exposes Asbestos Danger
Asbestos discovered after flooding of Redlands City Hall; LegalView offers wealth of asbestos and Mesothelioma guidance.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 25, 2007 -- When City Hall in Redlands City, California was flooded last week with gray water backed up from the city's sewage system, the initial concern was e coli bacteria. Another danger, however, was quickly identified by city workers; hazardous levels of asbestos. An asbestos remediation company has been brought in and workers have been relocated as cleanup efforts are delayed due to this dangerous discovery.
Asbestos was widely used in building insulation in the first half of the 20th century. We now know that exposure to asbestos can lead to mesothelioma, a crippling type of lung cancer that attacks the lining of the lung. Unlike most lung cancers, mesothelioma is not caused by smoking, according to the National Cancer Institute; the Institute reports that 80 percent of mesothelioma patients had known asbestos exposure earlier in life. Mesothelioma can kill quickly; on average, doctors give patients six months to a year to live after their diagnosis. With this in mind, LegalView.com continues to provide factual information, news and links to more information for mesothelioma patients and their families through its mesothelioma information internet portal.
LegalView.com strives to bring its readers complete, up-to-date information on legal issues that affect ordinary Americans.

Mesothelioma Lawyer Creates Mesothelioma Cancer Website
Top Boston Mesothelioma Law firm led by Shepard a leading Boston attorney Launches New Website to Provide a Valuable Information Resource to Assist Anyone with Questions About Mesothelioma and Other Asbestos-Related Injuries.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 22, 2007 -- Approximately six years after the 9/11 tragedy, more and more individuals are being medically documented as having experienced complications related to toxic exposure from the event. Dangerous exposure has been reported to have affected thousands both during and after the cleaning up of debris.
This exposure has led to mesothelioma cancer and other injuries caused by asbestos to become recent headlines for what appears to be a sudden epidemic of affliction. Evidence also suggests that past exposure from unregulated asbestos use many years prior to September 11, 2001, will also produce a resurgence of the pandemic in the near future.
Medical experts as well as experts from various other fields have joined in the crusade to help victims and their families better understand the issues surrounding asbestos exposure. Boston-based mesothelioma attorney Michael Shepard of the Shepard Law Firm has recently created an online community that helps individuals get answers to their questions, and opens doors for victims and their families.
A Helping Hand
Leading Boston Mesothelioma Lawyer - The Shepard Law Firm in Boston has been in practice for more than 13 years. The firm is known to deliver exceptional personal service for individuals with valid personal injury claims. Their specialty areas of practice and expertise include aircraft cases, crane cases, and injuries related to auto mechanics and household exposures to asbestos. The Shepard Firm has represented several clients affected by mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases.
Because of the extensive line of support one needs when dealing with a terminal illness like mesothelioma, Michael Shepard of The Shepard Firm envisioned creating a resource that would provide victims with more than simple legal advice. Http://www.mesotheliomacancer.com is a portal of information that serves to help individuals understand what treatment options and support groups are available, where to look for quality medical advice, legal options, and other things victims need to know.
Asbestos and Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is considered to be the most severe of all of the asbestos related diseases and one that requires the least amount of exposure to asbestos in order to develop. Exposure to asbestos often occurs in public places, primarily sites which serve as one's place of employment. Mesothelioma is an incurable form of cancer that affects the lungs, chest cavity, and surrounding organs and areas of the body. Symptoms of the disease typically do not occur or become noticeable until decades after being exposed.
The New Online Resource for Victims
By visiting this Boston based Mesothelioma Cancer web site, victims of asbestos and others who have questions about the disease can receive the answers they need. The launch of the new website is Attorney Shepard's response to the growing number of Mesothelioma treatment cases being reported, and the realization of the need to help people become informed on a more widespread scale. However, the website is meant to serve as more than just a simple research tool, it has been created to be an online means of support for those affected by mesothelioma and other serious diseases. Its format is created to be both easy to interpret and educational.
Key website features includes:
What Causes Mesothelioma
Symptoms of Mesothelioma
Options for Treating
Specialized Care, Nutrition and advance treatment options.
Plus links to books, articles, and other websites one can access for published information. Information on cancer support groups and treatment facilities as well as travel and lodging for family members of victims receiving treatment are other beneficial features. Actual personal stories are provided to demonstrate to victims and their families that they are not alone.
Victims of asbestos cancer and other related diseases are encouraged to visit the site to become more knowledgeable about their options. With thousands of new cases of these diseases being diagnosed each year, Shepard believes it is important to provide the public a practical means of staying informed.

Clinical Trial Announced for Cancer Pain
Exodon announces a new clinical research trial to combat break through cancer pain. The focus of the campaign is to study the efficacy of a new nasal spray.
Mount Arlington, NJ (PRWEB) October 20, 2007 -- Exodon LLC, a leading international clinical research company, announces the start of a new clinical trial for break through cancer pain (BTCP). The clinical trial will be is being conducted by Archimedes Development, Ltd.
Exodon is currently recruiting patients suffering from break through cancer related pain (BTCP). The focus of this clinical trial is to study the efficacy of a new nasal formation of an on-the-market opioid for BTCP. Oral opioid analgesics in pill or injection form take time to work and these medications remain active well after the break through pain has stopped. Because of these issues, this trial is researching a nasal spray application of an opioid medication. The opioid in the form of a nasal spray offers the benefits of a more rapid onset with decreased side-effect profile and can be used with the patient's current opioid medications for BTCP.
Break through pain is pain that is not controlled by the regular doses of pain medicines and is often a severe flare of pain that can occur even if patients are taking medicine for other types of pain.
"Since break through pain is not predictable and medication is only taken at the onset of pain, it is important for the drugs to take effect as soon as possible," says Gerald Tramontano, Ph.D., Director of Clinical Research of Exodon. "That is why a nasal spray has an advantage over other types of medicinal applications. We have a history of working with many leading hospitals and physicians and believe this trial will be of interest nationwide."
Trial participants pay no diagnostic or treatment costs related to the BTCP clinical trial.
Visit http://www.exodon.com for criteria for inclusion in this clinical trial and for more information about all of Exodon's current and upcoming clinical trials.
Exodon is an international clinical research organization which specializes in patient and investigator recruitment services. We have a robust network of pre-consented patients and researchers ready and available for entry into clinical trial research studies.
We reduce the patient/site recruitment time and increase patient retention through our proprietary system, the VALIDATE System®. Most of our sites participate in our VALIDATE System network resulting in a database that enables real-time access to real de-identified medical records. This enables Exodon to search for pre-qualified patients meeting the study's inclusion or exclusion criteria. The company's website can be found at http://www.exodon.com.

Online Casino Review Site Makes It Easy
Online Casino Bluebook - Site Review
The first thing you'll notice when you visit Online Casino Bluebook is it's lack of flash and fancy design. This is not your normal over-designed casino sites that makes you feel like you are surrounded by hundreds of blinking, beeping slot machines. No, this is a real review site written by real people. The site has been around since 2000, which has to make it one of the oldest and best established.
The home page doesn't waste any time and shows you right away what their top 10 Online Casinos are. The day that I visited the following sites were listed in this order:
1 Inter Casino
2 Golden Casino
3 Vegas Palms Casino
4 Platinum Play
5 Royal Vegas
6 Slot Land Casino
7 Super Slots
8 English Harbor
9 Bodog Casino
10 Riverbelle Casino
You'll have to visit the OnlineCasinoBlueBook.com site to read the detailed reviews, but I was surprised to see that these online casinos offer a Welcome bonus that ranges from $100 to $1,200! It's not hard to see why Inter Casino gets the top pick with a bonus of over $1,000! I could spend a lot of time gambling with that stake in my account...!
Unlike other review sites, Online Casino Bluebook has an email address right under the top 10 casino list. You can email them with your questions of if you need help choosing the best casino for your gaming.
The site also has top picks for the following categories of gambling sites: No Deposit Casinos, Online Casinos, Bingo Halls, Poker Rooms, and Sports Book Sites. Again, the amount of bonus money varies, but these lists make it very easy to decide which ones to try first.
I discovered they provide information on casino game strategy or instructions on how to play online casino games like Baccarat, Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Poker, Slots, and Video Poker. If you have not tried any of these popular games, this is a great way to get started, or just to review the ways the games can be played to see if it's something you will like.
If you are interested in Casino News, Online Casino Bluebook also provides that as well and has a news archive that goes back several years. So if you need to find out the latest happenings in the Casino Gaming Industry, or do some research to find out past news and events you can do that in one spot.
The last resource I looked at was Online Casino Bluebook's Casino Directory. This was a little disappointing in that there was a number of entries to Poker sites, Online Casinos, gambling sites, Free Casinos, Virtual Casinos, and much more, but not all of the links worked. I think I happened to visit in the middle of some house cleaning or reorganization from the way it looked. I know that good directories can take a lot of time and work to build and they need someone to go through and make edits and updates from time to time. I look forward to when this resource has been updated and is fully functional again.
So that's my review of the Online Casino Bluebook Casino Review site. I'd easily rate this site an "A" because of the low amount of distracting advertising and large amount of content and detailed site reviews.
